What Is Spotting?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm not clear on what's meant by "spotting" between periods. Does it mean actual little speckles ("spots") of blood found in your undies, or does it just mean an isolated incident of bleeding?

I think its different for everyone.. but generally applies to very light spotting, like the kind of spotting you get the day before your period starts, or the day after it ends.  Not enough to have to use a pad or a tampon, but enough that you notice pink tinged cm when you wipe.

Yeah, what she said.  Also, you start counting cycle days when you have full flow, not spotting.  Spotting before your period does not actually count as AF.
